Deep Diving Photo

It's a rare diver who hasn't felt the urge to dive deep. Deep diving opens the door to many new exciting dive sites like deeper wrecks, reefs and walls. As a rule, divers tend to be adventurous people, and deep diving - whether to visit a wreck or take photos - can certainly be called adventurous. It's only natural that like most divers, you have some interest in deep diving.

Deep diving is a means to an end. You make a deep dive to see, to do or to experience something that you can't on a shallower dive. There's no reason to make a deep dive if you can make essentially the same dive at a shallower depth. Unlike shallower dives, deep dives tend to be short since time and air supply is limited. Therefore, you don't have a great deal of time to do much so you'll need to make smart decisions about a dive objective and dive accomplishments.

What You Learn:

The philosophy of this course is to focus on making smart decisions for a stress free, deep diving experience with an emphasis on safety. We focus on the necessary equipment needed to support deep diving, discourage thrill seeker attitudes and encourage the proper deep diver behavior. We stress following appropriate limits, and the importance of a methodical approach to deep diving. Student divers will develop the techniques involved in deep diving within recreational limits (between the depths of 18 metres/60 feet and 40 metres/130 feet).

  • Techniques for diving in the deeper range of 18-40 metres/ 60-130 feet
  • Deep Diver Patch
  • Deep scuba diving equipment considerations
  • Experience in planning, organizing and making at least four deep dives under the supervision of your PADI Instructor


  • You must Be 15 years or older
  • You must have a PADI Adventure Diver certification (or have a qualifying certification from another organization)
